As we built our first site, MoreThanSexToys.com, we recognized that there was a significant lack of serious, accurate and practical information about sex. Sure there are plenty of websites but unfortunately many young adults have learned most of what they know about sex from easily accessible online porn. And porn, believe it or not, is not realistic.
As the parents of four children, including a college junior and a high school senior, we realized that our kids could use some help in feeling comfortable with the topic of sex and understanding the possible consequences. To that end, we will provide articles, interviews, land inks to resources to educate our customers.
We believe that sexual wellness is vital to a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. We hand-pick our products to be body-safe, high-quality and user friendly keeping in mind four key promises to our customers:
- Sex is an adult activity with adult consequences (our friend, Nina Hartley, coined this)
- We will always work to make your experiences FUN and SEXPOSITIVE. Sex is supposed to be enjoyable, not stressful. It is supposed to be a reward, not a punishment.
- We deliver quality products that perform as intended.
- We recognize the beauty of sexuality in its various forms between healthy adults who care for and respect one another.
- You can trust that we are looking out for your best interests.
We accept the World Health Organization's definition of sexual health:
“…a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled.” (WHO, 2006a)
We work directly with manufacturers and professional sex therapists to understand what works best. We then pass that information on to you.
We offer products made with the highest quality and safest materials by sourcing from the best manufacturers on the market at competitive prices.
Our goal is to provide our clients with the best product at the best price with the information they need to enjoy their purchase as much as possible.
We foster a sex positive approach to life. What is "sex positivity?" Renowned sex educator, Charlie Glickman, describes it as "the view that the only relevant measure of a sexual act, practice, or experience is the consent, pleasure, and well-being of the people engaged in it or the people affected by it."
You may notice that, by and large, we avoid using terms referring to sexuality or gender. We eschew most categorization on our site and embrace the beauty of that diversity.
We know that adult stores, whether online or brick-and-mortar, can sometimes be intimidating and frankly overwhelming. We designed this site to help find whatever you need to discover new ways of showing affection without bombarding you with images that could scare (or scar) you.
